Doing Business in Romania

Why Romania?

A marketplace of 21 million, 37 million acres of arable land, breathtaking landscapes, an expanding economy, a well-educated workforce with more than 50,000 specialists in information technology, access to the Black Sea and Asia. These features of Romania have attracted U.S. investors in banking, energy,

biotechnology, manufacturing, electronic components, cable operation, consumer products, telecommunications and film production, among others. They have discovered that American management and capital works profitably in Romania. U.S. exports in Romania are growing as well, fueled by Romania’s economic expansion and new reductions in trade barriers.

Romania offers significant opportunities to American businesses with products, services, or technologies that either meet growing private demand or contribute to the country’s development priorities. The country’s entry into the European Union in January 2007 was preceded by a series of government reforms in order to satisfy the conditions of EU membership. Now the requirements of membership – including EU directives – make up one of the driving forces in Romania’s program of reform, modernization and investment in infrastructure. More significantly, these directives are accompanied by funding from the EU in the form of Structural Adjustment Funds and other programs to enable the new members to align their economies with the rest of the EU.

Romania is a market with excellent potential, a strategic location, and an increasingly solid business climate. While careful evaluation of the market is needed in order to seize business opportunities, exporting to or investing in Romania is gradually becoming less challenging than in previous years in terms of the predictability of the business environment.

Romanian Country Commercial Guide

The Country Commercial Guide (CCG) presents a comprehensive look at Romania's commercial environment using economic, political, and market analysis. The CCGs were established by recommendation of the Trade Promotion Coordinating Committee (TPCC), a multi agency task force, to consolidate various reporting documents prepared for the U.S. business community. Country Commercial Guides are prepared annually at American Embassies through the combined efforts of several U.S. government agencies.
